Default POLL- Which cruise lines have U sailed? Do U have a FAVORITE

It's been a bit since we had a poll. Thought this one would give us a nice glimpse into the choices of the folks here at CM.

Which cruise lines have you sailed... and do you have a favorite?

For me:
Carnival
Celebrity
Costa
Princess
HAL
RCI
Seabourn
Radisson

So far.. my favorite overall cruise was on Celebrity Millennium... with 2 excellent cruises on that particular ship.

We have done 3 Celebrity cruises (Millenium, Infinity & Summit) , 1 RCI (Voyager), and 2 Princess cruises,(Dawn and Golden). Our favorite line is Celebrity. It has always been a notch above the others in terms of service, friendliness and cleanliness. We had a great time on the other cruiselines also. So far we haven't had a cruise that we wouldn't repeat in a heartbeat.

We have now sailed with NCL (Sea Jan. 04) and the Elation (just last week). I guess I would have to say the Elation was by far my favorite...we just booked on her again for next Jan. :o)

Disney Wonder
Carnival Destiny
RCCL (Explorer and Adventure)
Princess Golden
Norwegian(Majesty and Dream)

Favorite would have to be RCCL Adventure of the Seas for the itinerary and an all-around good cruise experience.

I have only sailed on Carnival and Celebrity.

As far as which is my favorite, I will quote Kuki since I have the exact same opinion, word-for-word: "So far.. my favorite overall cruise was on Celebrity Millennium... with 2 excellent cruises on that particular ship."

Cheers,
Michelle P.

We would say that we like the Celebrity Cruise Lines the best as we have been on 3 of her ships.. Also found the HAL Ryndam a very enjoyable ship.. We like smaller cruise ships, which are getting fewer by the year.. Going to take the Royal Princess this spring...

I've only been on two cruises, both HAL -- Volendam and Oosterdam. I am more than satisfied with both, although service and food was slightly better on Volendam.

I'm very encouraged by the praise for Millenium. I'm looking forward to sailing on her on Feb. 13.

Carnival 3 times Inspiration, Destiny Legend
Celebrity 5 times Mercury, Horizon, Zenith and 2x Summit
Princess 2 times. Crown and Ocean
Norwegian 2 times Wind and Dream (when it was Dreamward)
Windjammer 1 time (Flying Cloud

Would normally say Celebrity as favorate or preferred, but they are dropping very quickly off my radar screen altogether.

Commodore
American Hawaiian
Admiral
Premier
Celebrity
Princess
Holland America
Norwegian
Royal Caribbean

Generally these days we cruise H.A.L., Celebrity, and Princess

In recent years Princess has been tops for us but Celebrity and H.A.L. are quite comparable.

In November we will cruise Crystal for the first time.

Hi:

We've been on 33 cruises. Most of them have been with Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, 13, with one more booked for this September. We've sailed with Princess 5 times, about 7 with Carnival, 6 with NCL, 1 with Disney, 1 with Independence (Hawaii Line). I would have to say that RCCL, is our favorite.

Happy Cruising....Anita

RCI> Splendour 10 day and Enchantment 14 day b-t-b
Carnival > Paradise 14 day b-t-b and Imagination 5 day
Celebrity Horizon > 11 day
Dawn Princess 14 day b-t-b

for a total of 9 individual sailings.

We have not sailed enough on any of these lines to say one is overall better than another. However, from the sailings above, the Dawn Princess was the best for us.

Have been on only Carnival and Royal Caribbean

Carnival was the Destiny 4/03, Holiday 4/04, and Sensation 5/04.

Royal Caribbean was the Explorer 5/03, and Majesty 3/04.

Favorite cruise line is RCCL, with the Explorer being the best so far.

We are going on the RC Jewel cruisemates picnic cruise in 2 weeks, and have booked the RC Navigator for my MIL's 80th birthday 5/14/05.

Next year (2006) maybe we can try another line to see how we like them. My aim is to try as many different ships and cruise lines to see which I like the best, and to do that, we must try them all!
